    What's the best way for me to upgrade from SL to Lion along with a boot camp partition with Windows 7? Currently my 2009 MBP has SL and has a boot camp partition with Windows 7 and another secondary Mac HD partition. Will his work:

    1. Back-up through Time Machine under SL
    2. Erase boot camp and secondary partition to restore primary HD to take whole drive
    3. Clean install Lion
    4. Restore from Time Machine back-up
    5. Create new boot camp partition and reinstall Windows 7

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Why can't you just update to Lion? It doesn't affect Bootcamp.
